    Can I capture a responder's email address?

    Asked by Roger  on April 16, 2015 at 09:40 AM

    When compiling survey respondents it's important for us to know who's responded.  This becomes difficult when we ask the respondents to identify themselves because it opens up the door to incomplete and incorrect data.  We would like to clean this process up by having the respondents email or some other identifier populated in the survey data automatically.  Can you please assist with this?

    You can actually pre-populate fields in your form via the URL:


    However, you would need to create the URL for each respondent you are sending it to as there is no way to automate this process in JotForm.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
